"Works registered prior to 1978 may be found only in the Copyright Public Records Reading Room."

That's a disingenious argument which the owners of IA cannot afford. Profondo Rosso and Deep Red are OBVIOUSLY the same film! There is no difference between the two except or the fact that the 1994 release is restored and uncut. Do you really think that the Argento family has allowed the 1975 version's copyright to lapse?

Argento is known as the Italian Hitchcock. Do you really think that if 20 extra minutes of Psycho were added and then
re-released in France as Psychose that the original would then be up for grabs?

And speaking of which, have you checked the Italian copyright database for Profondo Rosso 1975?
I'm not fluent enough in Italian to do that. How about you?

And now Lucio Fulci's 1981 House By the Cemetery has been uploaded.

I was loath to post here because I was afraid that what I had to say would be ignored, but it's irresponsible to allow giallos by directors as eminent as Argento and Fulci to be uploaded here willy-nilly.

If this trend continues, IA will begin to be viewed, not as a valuable resource of films which might otherwise be lost, but as The Other Pirate Bay.

Ouch! Well, in the big picture of overall video uploads by random people, it's actually trending better than worse lately. This spate of feature film wildness looks to be pretty focused and narrow, like from a person or site who could be contacted and perhaps educated.

Meanwhile, the porn, anime, Bollywood and hidden warez that were flooding in at this time last year have gone to almost nothing. Other stuff like recent US or Egyptian TV and movies is currently coming into Open Source Movies, but at a much lower baseline than a year ago.

(One other interesting thing about movie flow here: Seems like the incoming jihadi stuff is lower in amount lately too. I wonder if it's related to the September cyberattacks on the big jihad sites that I read about in the news?)

Thank you for responding, Diana! :)

My apologies if my remark was in any way offensive.
I was overtired when I posted and meant qualify that statement to make it a bit less hyperbolic. It should have read:

"If this trend continues, IA will begin to be viewed by its European visitors, not as a valuable resource of films which might otherwise be lost, but as The Other Pirate Bay."

It's good to be made aware of the big picture, especially one so optimistic! :)
